From my home in the Rocky Mountain foothills North of Lyons, CO I lookup up to see the Moon sitting on top of a gigantic shelf of cloud, itself a very beautiful Anvil Thunderhead. With no time to waste, I ran to the house and quickly setup the camera and blasted off 20 or so shots before the moon disappeard beneath the white veil of cloud. Here's one shot, cropped by my friend Joe Glynn of Boulder.
